Harvest 2019

It's that time of year again where Churches across the country hold a Harvest Festival.  This is ia time when we can collect goods to donate to local Food Banks and support the work they do in our communities.  If you would like to contribute to a harvest festival in one of our churches, we collect for West Berkshire Food Bank and this year there are particular items they require.  Have a look at the list above and if you can donate items on this list we can support the local community with everything they need.  Thank you.

Save our Bells - Hampstead Norreys Church

Appeal for the Repair of the Bells at St Mary’s Hampstead Norreys

As many of you will be aware the bells at St Mary’s have been silent for last two to three years. This is because they are now unsafe to ring and require significant repairs to be carried out prior to them being declared safe  to ring once more. The total repair costs are estimated at about £60,000.

We have recently launched a fundraising project under the banner “Silent Knights” as the founders of the bells in the 17th century were members of the Knights family.

There are two elements to our fundraising – national and local. We are in the process of applying to the Heritage Lottery Fund and other national grant providers. Success in all these cases is greatly enhanced if good fundraising support is achieved locally. We would like to raise at least £2,500 from the local church community and by making a donation through the Good Exchange website the money will be match funded so we will receive twice the amount of the donation.

If you would like to donate to this worthy cause please make a donation using the following link:

We thank you and are grateful for your support.  If you have any questions please contact us at: bells@hampsteadnorreys.org.uk

St Mary’s Bell Project Team

Reverend Clive takes to the Sky in Memory of Jonathan Edwards

My name is Clive Jones. I am a 78 year old retired priest and I assist in the Hermitage Team. We had a young man - Jonathan Edwards who suffered from Motor Neurone Disease and who after gradually getting weaker, died on July 20th at the age of 47. I have been visiting him each week with the Sacrament. Unfortunately we hear very little about Motor Neuron Disease and its terrible effect on the individual and their family. My mission is to make people aware of this illness, and to raise money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

My grandson mentioned sky diving recently, and I thought that this would be a great way of raising funds for the Association.

I shall be Sky Diving in memory of Jonathan and on behalf of the Motor Neurone Disease Association on Thursday, September 26th 2019

My appeal to you all is to help me raise a large sum for the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

You can donate via my Just Giving page here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/clive-jones10-skydive

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

Or, speak to me for a Sponsorship Form. Thank you for helping make a difference to suffers and their families and may those who are doing the research find the cause of this terrible illness and the cure that is needed.
